How can we help?
Right at Home’s East Lancashire and Ribble Valley CareGivers deliver palliative care sensitively and with dignity, helping to control pain and keep your loved one as comfortable as possible as they approach the end of their life. We stay with our clients to the end of their journey, with their trusted preferred CareGivers providing specialist palliative care and support for the whole family, allowing them to focus their attention on their loved one and each other. We work in Partnership with St. Catherine’s Hospice, which provides end of life and Palliative Care training to our CareGivers in addition to the company’s own wide range of specialist care training.
Our CareGivers can provide round-the-clock companionship, personal care, monitoring and help with medication.
We can also support family members by offering respite from daily tasks such as light housekeeping, laundry and meal preparation.
Right at Home will work closely with hospices, GPs and other healthcare professionals, and can also help loved ones access sources of emotional and practical support.
Information and Resources on End-of-Life Care
You can find information and support relating to end-of-life care on the NHS Choices website.
Their End Of Life Care Guide explains what you can expect from end-of-life care and gives information about an individual’s rights and choices, including refusing treatment, setting down their wishes for future treatment, and arranging to give someone the legal right to make decisions for them, if they are no longer capable.
The guide also contains information on discussing these issues with family and carers.
